History[]

The airline was first created by the government in 2001. After a year of governmental ownership, the airline split from the government, and was bought by TransTerra. The airline bought many aircaft, from Antarctic aircraft companies, such as Airhail and Snowing. It avoided Kumpchema, to become more modernized, claiming that it would be more efficent for their routes. In 2004 they stepped in to merge with TerraMount Airways. AirTerra was having a financial crisis ain 2008. Sancho Monte Captio saved AirTerra saved the company by giving them 500,000 ĎÁÚ in return for a 50% stake, that Sancho would become the CEO and that they become a member of the SkyAlliance (they previously rejected membership). They agreed. That means Sancho owns 50% and TransTerra owns 50%. Later they also joined SkyAlliance.

Incidents and Accidents[]

  • On January 4, 2010, AirTerra Flight 3421, from Polaris, was a Snowing 777-300ER, and it's nose landing gear broke on touchdown at New Club Penguin International Airport. The aircraft slid across the runway, and stopped in the Runway Safety Zone, resulting the airport to close for 23 hours, and diverted and or delayed many flights to New Club Penguin (many were diverted to Neo Domino International Airport). No penguins were hurt in the incident, and is under investigation by the National Safety Board of the United Terra.
  • On September 12, 2004, AirTerra Flight 6782 from Neo Domino International Airport to Shield Island International Airport (via Aquarius City Airport), was a Airhail A330-300 and suffered engine failure when a skua's feather fell into the engine and into the fuel system started to set on fire to the engine. Luckily it was just after the plane had touched down in the aiport two hours earlier and even the pilots had left. The plane was damaged, including it's port wing, which was heavily damaged, as well as it's starboard engine. Two airport staff suffered minor injuries. The incident has been dubbed a mechanical failure by the FAAA. A year later all Airhail A330-300s were taken out of service.

Controversy[]

When Orbit Oceanic Airways protested AirTerra joined them in the NO WAY UTA/CPA scheme. In 2005, a group of barnstorming aircraft created the words "NO WAY WITH UTA AND CPA, LOVE AIR TERRA" above the skiesNew Club Penguin International Airport. There was controversy over this, since what was being claimed was that AirTerra was using them for the National Terrian Air Show. Although they did take part in the air show, where they repeated the same messahe, the National Safety Board of UnitedTerra deemed this "this feat could have endangered airspace around the airport, and may have caused an accident". The FAAA received complaints from two airlines, the former MammothAir and UTA, that they clogged up the runway which caused the planes to arrive late. UTA even claimed that "they intended to delay the landing to give us a bad reputation and people like that are evil". MammothAir didn't comment, neither did Orbit Oceanic and the UTA sued them. ATR were fined 500,000 pebbles by the FAAA and 750,000 from the National Safety Board. Surprisingly, the stunt made the air show more popular and almost everyone say that 'LOVE AIRTERRA' shows that the airline has a sense of humour.
